Head to the luxurious marina for fine dining, shopping and boat trips. A busy area both night and day, it is the perfect spot for purchasing souvenirs and gifts or relaxing over quality food with unbeatable sea views. If you’d prefer to swim and lounge on the sand, there are a host of beaches in Alicante, but one of the most popular is San Juan Beach; only 4 km outside of the city and boasting a Blue Flag award, it is the perfect place for some relaxation.
For a more active break, visit some of the beautiful parks in the city. Canalejas Park is the oldest and home to gorgeous fountains and amazing statues, while EL Palmeral on the outskirts of the city is home to hundreds of shady palms and boasts impressive waterfalls and lakes. Parque del Morant offers gentle, shaded walkways and an open-air theatre that houses performances in the summer months.
Also visit the smaller but just as interesting Castillo de San Fernando on Tossal Hill, and the gothic Iglesia de Santa Maria; built between the 14th and 16th centuries, this pretty church is renowned for its Baroque interior and art collection. The town hall behind La Explanada Park is a dramatic structure and a stunning example of baroque architecture, while the Cathedral of San Nicolas has an impressive dome and lovely gardens to stroll around. .
Tibi Castle is another popular scenic drive from Aliante; head out of the city on the A7 north, onto the CV-810, to witness one of the most scenic driving routes in the Costa Blanca region. A quiet, traditional village, Tibi is home to a myriad of whitewashed houses, the ruins of Moorish Tibi Castle surrounded by mountains and historic Castilla de Tibi. It takes approximately one hour to reach and is well worth the effort.
